    I've watched the odd unboxing video, but they fail to convey the best part of unboxing new tech. That new tech smell. :yep:

    In my last job I was unboxing MacBooks/MBPs practically every other week. Kinda strips the novelty away after a while...

    I can't stand them personally, I'd rather risk a couple of scratches than have to put up with it! Hopefully that won't be an issue with my Lumia, scratch resistant gorilla glass [=

    I have to say, I never thought I'd see the day where I'd be excited about the prospect of buying a Windows device!

    It's not entirely resistant. Granted, I haven't scratched my screen, but others over on XDA have complained about it. Just avoid keys/change/copious amounts of sand and you'll be reet.

    I have a matte (anti-glare) cover on my phone. So much nicer than glass, never gets any fingerprints, and is a lot smoother to the touch.

    Gotta agree with you. I hate all phone cases. So what if it gets a scratch? Then it's got a story! :yep:

    Reduces the resell value though. Which for Apple phones is best avoided, since their resell value if kept in good condition is very good.

    I know, but I'm generally quite careful with my phones so hopefully it will be ok. My keys and wallet live in my right pocked and my spare change goes in the "condom pocket" (Which I'm assuming is an urban myth, one of life's mysteries XD), so my phone typically has a pocket to itself [=

    Well...yeah... "I dropped it" ain't the most exciting.

    True, but my HTC ain't made by Apple. I've resigned myself to the fact it'll be worth nothing after a 2 year contract. :sad:

    Is that the thing I use as a guitar pick pocket? If so... someone down the line had a small penis. :yep:
